Just Don't Know What To Do

Hard to believe that September is nearly over.  
It is sooo weird.  
The temperatures have been in the 70's to 80 but its dark by 7 pm.  
Trees are starting to turn but, just starting.  
I'm not complaining.  It's just so weird.  
I believe in global warming.  

I have been thinking about what to make for my stitching groups Christmas presents.  
I'm just dry, nothing, and uninspired.  
I just don't know what to if anyone has an idea.  
I have done pre-blog:  altoid boxes, sew gadget with a stitched case, notebooks with stitching on the front, candle wraps out of perforated plastic (that was tough on the joints), and a stitching bag, to name a few.  

These were calendar covers with a dayplanner calendar, Drawn Thread, I did the months they were born in 2011
A wooden box, With Thy Needle and Thread with needle books, scissors fobs and a scissors.
Had a box and trappings leftovers and did it as a drawing.  

2013 was bracelets.  These beads I thought were really cool.  Don't know that anyone wears them.  
Maybe not such a good idea.  
2014 was a project bag, another With Thy Needle and Thread.  I think this did turn out awesome.
So here it is guys,  I think I may actually just buy something. (GASP)
I just haven't seen anything that really floats my boat. 
I think a lot has to do with just dealing with moms and having to quilt.....(ugh!!)
If anyone has a good idea, let me know. 
I think I'm tapped out. Should have had a drawing for that.  
Got my Pandora playing my Steely Dan station and Gerry Rafferty is playing.  
Takes me back to college days.  

That about wraps it up.
Keep on Stitching.  


  1. Hmmm...what about something made by someone else? You could browse Etsy for ornaments, trinket bags, stitching related items and so on. Or you could make sets of marking pins with a matching thread picker.

    The leaves are just starting to turn here. Fall is coming even though the calendar says it is already here.

  2. Beautiful gifts for your friends. I like Robin's idea. How about cute needleminders?

  3. Why not try felt pin cushions, I think they would be fairly quick to make. If you have a look at Daily Pincushion on Etsy for some ideas. You'll have to look at past sales as I don't think she has anything for sale just now.
